It was previously announced that Paul Wight (formerly the Big Show in WWE) signed with AEW where he will be a commentator for new series AEW Dark: Elevation, as well as occasionally wrestle. In a post on Twitter, Mick Foley wished Wight well and had his own thoughts about why he left the WWE.
He wrote: “Wishing the very best to my friend @PaulWight on his signing with AEW. I’m guessing the big fella thought he had done all there was to do in @WWE – and that he still had some gas left in the tank.”
